Norse - Son of Jonakur and Gudrun. In some versions of the story of Gudrun and Atli, Gudrun survived an attempted suicide by drowning and married King Jonakur by whom she had three more sons, Erp, Hamdir and Sorli. When her daughter, Swanhild, was killed by King Ermenrich, Gudrun ordered her three sons to avenge Swanhild's death. En route, Hamdir and Sorli killed their younger brother, Erp, deeming him to be too young for such a mission. When they found the king, they cut off his hands and feet and would have killed him, had not Odin intervened. The brothers were stoned to death, on the orders of Odin, by the king's subjects. Also called Sorli.
